#sketchsquall Day One

This year’s #Storystorm was difficult–I guess for obvious reasons.It was harder to get into a picture book frame of mind, but Tara Lazar’s wonderful challenge won out, and I have my 30 ideas! Now it’s time to try to pair an image with each idea, in hopes of discovering which have the potential to turn into picture books. Here goes . . .

#sketchsquall update: March challenge

At the close of last month’s #sketchsquall challenge, I picked four of the ideas to develop further. The plan is to spend one week on each. The ones I chose were numbers 1, 8, 9 and 28 (scroll down to see the #sketchsquall images).

It’s the end of week one, and I’m happy with the progress–I’ve done some sketching, begun to plan out an image to paint, and even have some text, scribbled on a post-it. After spending quality time with this idea, I still like it–and even better, I think it has pb potential, which is good news. 🙂

On to idea #8 tomorrow!

Day 28!

I like the image–no story yet.

This is a wrap for the #sketchsquall challenge for me. I plan to use tomorrow’s bonus day to get organized for the next step: I’d like to take the top four ideas (the ones I’m most excited about) and give each a week of further thought and sketching–maybe even some words.

Thank you to those who followed along–here, on Twitter and Instagram. Stay tuned for future developments! 🙂
